    I know it's upset people but this is why we've got so many night games, we should be proud of it.

    Let's hope as the most popular team in Australia we get a bit of bias this year!

    I wouldn't count on it.

    Wow! 5 of the 10 most watched games of the Home and Away season involved us! And all of those 5 were Friday night games.
    No wonder the AFL has decided that Swans are nocturnal.

    I don't mind Friday night games as long as they are away games.

    25,480 signed up so far, which is about 1,500 down on the same time last year.... I guess the lack of sunny afternoons (or some might say, fair weather ) is telling. Or perhaps the slow start reflects that of the team in 2017..?

    Has anyone else noticed that the membership caps are really flimsy this year? They are still made by ISC. Also, I missed out on a bumper sticker :-(. Might have to just buy one from the website.

Rather be in Thailand and probably will be.

    The AFL have stuffed my footy season by programing night games. Why is it that Sydney Swans fans asked for less night games, more day and twilight games but the AFL in their wisdom program almost all night games. Bastards.
    Putting it bluntly, that's just pathetic. You're a barracker, NOT a supporter. I hardly go to any games each season due to work commitments and the fact that I live in Melbourne but I still fork out money to support my team.

    Edit: Pathetic excuse not pathetic.

    Received my membership package yesterday. Bring on 2018.
    Does anyone know if we will get the little fold down card with the fixture, NEAFL fixture, and all Swans players listed on it this year?

    I seem to remember that last year it came later with the Swans magazine.

    While I detest the valuing of fans by $$. I think you've created a new category.

    Dollar Fan categories.
    1. Fool (and his money)
    2. Supporter
    3. Barracker.

    Often those who think they are a no. 2, are really a no. 1.
